Do you like to imagine the life that an old house has held? This week I’m going to visit my family in MIchigan. Our last trip there, we went to Greenfield Village. Old homes and buildings sit on lawns and fields and help us imagine all the generations that passed through their doors.
The children will run in and out and laugh and play, and we’ll all trek up and down the stairs (oh, so many times). We’ll enjoy lunch on the porch, and in the evening I’ll tuck the young ones in bed and read them a story. We’ll make memories. And we’ll add them as chapters in the larger story of almost a century of life in this house.
How about you? Do you enjoy visiting historic homes? Do they launch your imagination?
